Posted January 2017

Well, it has been a long and challenging year, a year where I lost some good friends and talented colleagues - but also a very productive one as a writer. So many of my plays were produced this year, across the country and the world - and I watched A Very Modern Marriage in Australia at the Owl and Cat Theatre via FaceTime; and saw the Los Angeles premiere of The Ithaca Ladies read Medea at Little Fish Theatre, and a fantastic revival of A Gulag Mouse at Sacred Fools, and an emotional production of Childish Things at the Hollywood Short + Sweet Festival. I taught a workshop on screenwriting at the Last Frontier theatre Conference, and saw the production of a feature film version of A Gulag Mouse, directed by Simon Fink. I ended the year writing for a New Year's Eve overnight play festival for Sacred Fools.

Publications this year included Bully Issues as part of the collection Bullying, Ink from YouthPLAYS, and If You Could Go Back... as part of the collection 30 Short Plays for Passionate Actors.
